Nature reserves

Local Nature Reserves are havens for wildlife and are open to all to experience the peace and quiet of the natural world. Carmarthenshire County Council looks after four Local Nature Reserves as part of a commitment to safeguard biodiversity.  

There are six Local Nature Reserves in Carmarthenshire: Pembrey Burrows and Saltings, Ashpits Pond and Pwll Lagoon, North Dock Dunes, Carreg Cennen, Glan-yr-Afon, Kidwelly, and Morfa Berwig, Bynea. There are also a number of Nature reserves throughout the  County managed by other organisations.
